Metrowerks Supports Sony PSP with CodeWarrior Development Suite

3/23/2004 - Metrowerks now supports the PSPTM platform with an evaluation version of its CodeWarriorTM Development Studio for PSPTM. The evaluation version is available now, allowing game title creators to become familiar with the development environment for Sony Computer Entertainment Inc.ís (SCEIís) new platform.

Developers have been encouraged to create new titles for PSPTM rather than port existing software from PlayStation®2 environments. This policy has heightened demand for world-class tools created specifically for the new platform. With the evaluation version release, Metrowerks has responded to this demand by offering developers a comprehensive, award-winning development environment for creating new game titles.

CodeWarrior Development Studio for PSPTM offers a comprehensive, consistent environment for fast and easy application creation. It includes a native compiler for the rapid production of compact, high-quality object code, and a debugger that offers developers an intuitive graphic interface for flexible and accurate debugging capabilities.

With CodeWarrior Development Studio for PSPTM, developers have the option to develop within the native CodeWarrior development environment, or integrate to the Visual Studio.NET environment.

Metrowerks will host a private, invitation-only session during GDC 2004 on Thursday, March 25, 2004 to demonstrate the evaluation version.
